Live Poll: Most Intense War Related Movie Scenes

This is the 'war-edition' of the most-intense-movies-scenes-polls. According to IMDb poll board users, there are scenes in some war movies that are so intense with struggle or a special twist, that you will never forget them again. Which of these intense war-scenes below is your pick?

(Feel free to vote, even if you saw just a few of these movies.
If you didn't see any of them, pick the one that you would watch the most likely)

(Only Movies related to real wars containing real inspired to pure fictional events with a rating of at least 6/10)

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls024846644/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/ICx9v1hbldU/

This is the fifth part of the row.

Live-poll part I
Live-poll part II
Live-poll part III
Live-poll part IV

Some war related movies are still used in some of the other four polls. These are no option for this poll:

'Schindlers List'
'The Deer Hunter'
'Inglorious Basterds'
'Buried'
'Sicario'
'Incendies'
'Saving Private Ryan'
'Dunkirk'

I'm aiming for 25 options to present, but I'm open for more. Some on the existing list - linked above - are debateable when there are better options. Some of the options are carved in stone. Intense emotional scenes of wartimes sometimes prefered, like Adrien Brody in 'The Pianist'. Count the 'cold war' as war!

Greetings. :D

I would nominate this one as my all-time favorite is its depiction of "intensity" fits the poll, though it's not related directly to war but takes place in a context of war

Simply said, one of the best opening scenes from any film!

I've seen the movie and I thinks it's pretty ok. I like Kusturica's movies. The opening scene is funny. When you see it twice while thinking of a most intense movie scene, would you still suggest it? I don't know, maybe. But it's also more like a sequence, like something in between a scene and a sequenz. I'm not sure, half-convinced. Can you give me further reasons why I should put this on the list? At the moment I'm undecided. Maybe an image link and the description you thougt of. Then I will decide.

Well, I wasn't going to suggest the moment where Marko is with the hooker getting a special treatment while the whole city is drowning under German bombings? :)

Anyway the opening scene might serve for Jen's poll :)

Well, click your link you posted. It's the opening scene, you'll see.
But if you give me the right image and a proper line for the image, I could use it.
I know there was something about that what  you told, but I don't remember this clearly.
Where did you mention the hooker scene before?
It would be helpful, if you didn't ever write in riddles. Please come to the
point, just one time without only dropping hints. I won't bite you. ;)

'So many good choices. It's hard to choose. 'Glad to see 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' represented. 

May I suggest just a few edits to the intro? ('In bold, below.)

Thank you, ruby. :D
You're always so kind and helpful. I corrected the things you mentioned.
And while reading I understood, it really sounds better. Now I got an
English teacher on the internet. That's what German Schools didnt
achieve on me. Maybe their contents for why learning English were to
boring. ;) "This is a red pencil ..." ;)

18 is must better. I think on the "In the Father" entry you don't have to put the information about The Troubles in there - I just put it on this post in case the scene/film didn't seem war-related.

Another suggestion - Three Kings. It's hard to pick just one scene, pretty much the whole first half of the movie has you on the edge of your seat.

But here's the one:
Trying to save the Kuwaitis by getting them over the border

Adding a photo - I'll let you know when it's approved.

Sorry, I took it as an explanation for other users. Now it's deleted.

I will check 'Three Kings'. That was pretty good, too. I'll put it to the list.

Did you mean #18 is much better or has to be better?

The British-Irish conflict can truly been considered to be a long winded, silent war with too many victims. We always got the news in TV and the papers. That was real life for many people in these 3 decades.

Added 'Three Kings'. Thank you for suggesting. It's a pretty good movie.
I was surprised about it's qualities. The cover looked a little
'in a pedestrian way'

The movie.

Seems like the description of Three Kings doesn't really work. You're not talking about the specific scene, you're almost recapping the entire film. I suggest using what I originally wrote. Of course, making a change is completely up to you.

I saw you had posted a posting with 'The Dirty Dozen' and 'Stalag 17'. But the posting seems to be lost by the server troubles. Can you post image links of the movies on IMDb here and a short description of the intense moment? Then I'll put it on the list. When I saw these movies, it's a long time ago and I do not remember proper on special moments.

Remember: It should be one intense moment of the movie, not a sequence. And I need the description for each scene seperately. Do and I guess I will remember then and put it on the list. I know these two are special movies with good scenes. Wasn't it, that they installed an provisional alarming system for detecting the german guard at 'Stalag 17'?

You can help me putting them both on the list, because it seems you remember more proper.

Btw: 'The Enemy Below' - I searched for some images, but there are not many.
As I haven't seen the movie, I need to know if this image would fit to your suggestion:

"This is the fifth part of the row." - I suggest series instead of row.

FYC:
Defiance - Alone on a supply run in the dead of winter, Lilka is attacked by a wolf.
I'll let you know when the photo is approved.

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence - The Japanese bury Strafer standing up in the sand all the way to his neck.
I'll let you know when the photo is approved.

The Hurt Locker - James desperately struggles to remove a cage loaded with bombs locked to an innocent Iraqi. 
I'll let you know when the photo is approved.

The Deer Hunter - Michael, finding and trying to save Nick, ends up playing Russian Roulette with him.

Thank you, Jen. Jeorj is right. 'Deer Hunter' is out and the hurt locker is as well. This idea grew and at the third poll suggestion the rules were worked out. There are only 2 movies featured twice at this poll series, from poll three on there are no movies picked up twice by scene. I'll take the  other two you suggested into consideration.

Jen:

For 'Defiance' it's ok for me, when you find right images for these scenes you describe, I'll put it to the list. Except the case one other I promised it, will get his/her image for the text and the text earlier online. There are just a few slots remaining to be filled. The rule of GS and IMDb says 35. The one who reacts more fast gets his suggestion on my list, except I truly feel the other suggestion is better. As I don't know the movie by haven't watch it, I'll try to understand, if the scene is more acceptable. When the image for 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence' is approved, let me know. So I will consider it.

Sorry, I misunderstood the note about those titles not being eligible.

You should double-check all four previous polls - not all of them have all the links to the others. Can you can go ahead and put them into this one.

Row vs. series?

FYC:
WarGames - with the entire world on the brink of annihilation, David must "teach" Joshua that there are no winners in war.

WarGames 1983


WarGames 1983

Heh...online looking for a better photo and one comes up with the description: "This is the film's tensest scene."

Other photos still in progress. Cheers.

Hello, Jen. :D
Thank you for suggesting. I know, I declared the "cold war" as ok for this list. The main question is, if this is close enough to the other movies on that list. If enough people think it is, I will put it on the list, but I for myself got mixed feelings about it. Even if I really like that movie. :)

Btw: Thank you for putting the most fitting image for the scene here. I like that. :)
And not all of these polls are induced by me. The first two were a project by
Kyle Perez and SventhAr7, I just got involved by my personal interest in it. It grew since then.

You should ask Kyle and Sven to add your titles and ask for a re-push.

Thank you for the images, Jen. That's nice of you but a little late. I just saw this became already the poll. I would ask for a repush for 'Defiance' and 'Merry X-Mas, Mr. Lawrence'. But I now none of them two and don't know what to write for the scene you want me to put on the list. What are these scenes about?
